But what time does Celebrity Big Brother start on Channel 5? Who is going in? And why is there an all female line-up?
Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s Celebrity Big Brother launch.
What time does Celebrity Big Brother start?
The new series of Celebrity Big Brother will begin at 9pm tonight on Channel 5 and presented by Emma Willis.
The launch will finish at 10.35pm before Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side at 11.35pm with Rylan Clark-Neal.
Why is there an all-female line-up?
This year Celebrity Big Brother will launch with its first ever all-female line-up.
The reality series will be celebrating 100 years since women were granted the right to vote with a true girl power cast.
“In January 2018, as the nation marks 100 years since women won the right to vote for the very first time, Celebrity Big Brother launches this series with an all-female cast of celebrity housemates in a salute to a centenary of women’s suffrage on Channel 5,” bosses revealed.
“Presented by Emma Willis, Celebrity Big Brother will initially explore how the all-female housemates interact, from politicians to performing artists, as they enter the house first, ahead of the celebrity male housemates.
“Over the course of the series, as the male counterparts enter the house, the housemates will take part in a series of entertaining tasks and hidden experiments which will test their – and our – assumptions, challenge gender stereotypes and reveal fascinating truths about what it is to be a woman – and man – in the 21st century.
“See what happens when women hold the power, as Celebrity Big Brother January 2018 is set to be celebratory, surprising and insightful.”
Though, male stars will be added to the bill as the series goes on.
How do I watch Celebrity Big Brother live online?
Celebrity Big brother will be available to stream live on Demand 5 from all PC and mobile devices.
Episodes will then be available to watch on Demand 5 hours after they’ve been screened on Channel 5.
When is the Celebrity Big Brother final?
Bosses are keeping a tight lid on the date for the finale.
Traditionally, Celebrity Big Brother lasts for around a month but the last series ended after just 25 days, marking the shortest stint since 2013.
Who is in the Celebrity Big Brother line-up?
Channel 5 confirmed the first housemate last month, announcing that Rachel Johnson will be entering the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Rachel was formerly editor of The Lady and is the sister of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.
“We can confirm that journalist Rachel Johnson will be one of the female Celebrity Big Brother housemates entering the House live at 9pm, Tuesday 2nd January on channel5_tv!” bosses proudly revealed.
Naturally, bosses are keeping the names joining her a secret but it’s believed Rachel will be sharing a house with the likes of Love Island star Johnny Mitchell, X Factor’s Sinitta and former MP Charlotte Leslie.
Fans are currently going wild over reports that Ann Widecombe has been spotted at a hotel nearby to the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Celebrity Big Brother begins tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
